Learning outcomes

Students know central concepts and approaches to intercultural education and communication, and understand the processes of social domination, marginalization and exclusion.
Students are able to analyze how discourses of culture, cultural differences and intercultural education and communication may reassert dominant hegemony, prevailing social hierarchies, and inequitable distributions of power and privilege.
They can evaluate various texts and images of cultures and cultural difference, and also how meaning-making regarding difference informs their own world views.
They are able to design material (presentations, teaching material, texts, videos etc.) regarding intercultural education and communication in which sociopolitical context is acknowledged and questions about control and power are raised.
